Lindsay Lohan, who lied to police and told them someone else was driving after a high speed chase down PCH, is aghast that anyone would think she would lie to police and tell them someone else was driving after an accident on PCH. The two things are totally different!
(Lindsay says) she never would have deliberately lied to cops when asked if she was driving the car that rear-ended an eighteen wheeler in Santa Monica, Calif. last summer. Rather, the actress insists she was extremely confused after the accident. "Both airbags were deployed when Lindsay rear-ended the dump truck on Pacific Coast Highway last summer. She doesn't remember exactly what she said to cops while being treated for injuries she sustained at the hospital," a source tells us. "There was a lot of commotion in the emergency room, and Lindsay was extremely upset and concerned for [her assistant] Gavin, who was also in the car with her. "Gavin was bleeding, and Lindsay was just freaking out. There were cops coming at her from every angle, and her primary concern was making sure that Gavin was OK. She was also stressed-out because she had been en route to the set of Liz & Dick. Lindsay says she was very confused after the accident and would never deliberately lie to the cops."
So there you have it. Lindsay never would have told the police her assistant caused the wreck if the room hadn't been so crowded. It was also very breezy that day, anyone would accidentally lie under those conditions. A question like, "who was driving" requires absolute focus and concentration, it could have been literally anyone, it's not as if the poor girl has a photographic memory.
